2017 PREECE Nagam­bie Chardon­nay

Halliday - - Promotion - $19.99, preece.com.au @preecewine

Wine­maker: Travis Cly­des­dale

Del­i­cate aro­mas of nougat, cit­rus blos­som and spicy oak notes swirl and lift from the glass. Stone fruit and cit­rus rind com­bine and build ahead of a fresh and cleans­ing fin­ish.

What de­fines your style of chardon­nay?

The Preece style of chardon­nay aims to cap­ture the clas­sic char­ac­ters of the va­ri­ety. Pri­mary char­ac­ters of peach, nec­tarine and crisp cit­rus pre­vail, with sub­tle sec­ondary French oak notes of grilled nuts and cream.

What tech­niques do you use for this wine?

In hon­or­ing the le­gacy of Colin Preece, tech­niques are aimed at re­tain­ing fresh­ness, while at the same time en­hanc­ing the com­plex­ity that chardon­nay is in­her­ently ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing. Early pick­ing aids the re­ten­tion of crisp and re­fresh­ing nat­u­ral acid­ity, while ex­tended lees con­tact on high-qual­ity French oak builds tex­ture and savoury bite.
